  • It is a small, lovely town in the midst of the Orcha Valley which was the main street of the town. It may not be a place to visit unless you have a great time, but I think it is a very good spot to enjoy the scenery of the Orcha Valley slowly. From this city, you can enjoy a leisurely walk to Bagno Vignoni, the city's hot springs.
